At the recent mid-year board meeting, the Tire Industry Association (TIA) Board of Directors voted to adopt a new mission statement that more accurately represents the focus of the association's efforts.
Over the past few years, TIA has placed a lot of emphasis on training and education programs, as well as the longstanding government affairs component that serves as the voice of the membership. By adopting the new mission statement, the Board believes that TIA will have an even more clear direction moving forward.
The mission of TIA is to promote tire safety through training and education, to act as the principal advocate in government affairs, and to enhance the image and professionalism of the industry so that our member businesses may be more successful.
"We have achieved phenomenal growth over the past few years due to the success of our members, so the updated mission statement definitely reflects our identity as an organization," says Roy Littlefield, TIA's executive vice president. "Training and government affairs have always been our strengths and our most valued member services, but we recognize that the challenges facing our members require additional support to help the public understand the roles that the industry plays in society and the workforce."
